Itty Bitty Christmas, Feels Like Frost, Easy Christmas Card

I was looking for a fun, quick, and easy card to make using the "Feels Like Frost" Designer Series Paper (DSP) and I ran across this one. You can see the original here.  I liked the look of this card. It gives it a nice wintery look yet it's warm and inviting.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Balmy Blue.  I probably should have used Seaside spray, the blues might have blended together more.  But it's still pretty.

On top of the card base is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.

I cut the DSP to 3-3/4" x 5" and taped a 6" piece of ribbon around it. I used scotch tape on the backside of the DSP.  I taped the DSP to the Whisper White piece and then slipped a piece of ribbon under the taped ribbon strip and tied a knot. I trimmed the edges.

The words are from the "Itty Bitty Christmas" set and were stamped using Night of Navy ink. I die cut them using the "Ornate Frames" dies. I was going to use a stitched circle die but I thought this looked better. I set this piece in place using Dimensionals.

I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside and the card was done.  It was quick, easy, and fun.  Plus it's pretty!!!  Oh and it's not an October 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit card!!! LOL  FYI, my November kid did come so I am anxious to see what I'm going to find using it.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,

Forever Fern, Christmas Card, October 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative Card

I'm hoping this is the last card I post using the October 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit. I'm sure you are too!! LOL It's been a fun kit and I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of the November kit. I have heard some people have gotten theirs. I received an email stating that it was shipped but I have not looked to see when it will be arriving. I usually count about 10 days and it's here.  So here's today's card. I think of all the cards I've made from the kit, this one is my favorite.  I can't find the site where I copied this card from but it's pretty close.  Except for the ribbon, the edges of the word piece, the leaves and Wink of Stella. I had shut my computer down before I saved the image so I don't have a link for you to see it.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  I cut a 1-1/2" x 5-1/4" piece off the front of one of the cards from the kit.  And I cut a 2-3/8" x 5-1/2" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) that was sitting on my worktable. I do not recall what package it was from. It's got gold dashes on it so I thought it would work with this piece. You can always use just a plain piece of Whisper White or you can texture a piece too.  And there's always the option of gold embossing on it. So there's several ways to fill in that side. I taped those two pieces to the front of the card. 

I had some thin gold ribbon so I taped it on the spot where the two pieces of DSP/card stock met.

I die cut a Cherry Cobbler rectangle piece using the "Ornate Layers" dies.  I taped it on top of the piece on the left side of the card. I added some Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow, and white glitter paper leaves from the "Forever Fern" bundle and I taped them down on the upper part of the "Ornate Layers" rectangle piece.  The original card used some other dies for the leaves. I didn't have those dies so I used the ones from the "Forever Fern" bundle and it worked, it looks good to me.

I added the die cut flower from the Paper Pumpkin kit using Dimensionals.  

Then I stamped the words from the kit using Cherry Cobbler ink. I stamped them on one of the stitched rectangles that came in the kit. I die cut a gold label from the left over gold sheet. I had to cut the ends of it separately because there wasn't enough gold to make a whole label. But I only needed the ends and if I had cut a whole label I'd be cutting it in half to tape to the ends.

I taped the gold pieces to the ends of the word piece and that was set in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals.  And the card was finished.

This was the most fun I had making the cards from this kit. I had fun with all of them but this one was the most fun. I love the colors here and how rich looking it is.

The original card used some other dies for the leaves. I didn't have those dies so I used the ones from the "Forever Fern" bundle.  

My November Paper Pumpkin kit arrived today so this is probably the last card from the October set that I will be making.  Maybe!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today and have a look,

Itty Bitty Christmas, Ever Green Forest, Christmas Card, 2020 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

I got this very fun embossing folder in the 2020 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. It's called "Evergreen Forest". I saw a card on Pinterest that used it with some gold foil card stock, so I thought I'd give it a try. You can see the original card here.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Shaded Spruce. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla that was textured using the new "Winter Snow" embossing folder. I like that folder because the snowflakes are so crisp and defined. And there's a lot of them on there.  

I cut a piece of Shaded Spruce card stock to measure 4-3/8" x 3-1/8".  And the foil piece was cut 4-1/4" x 3".

The words are from the "Itty Bitty Christmas" set and were stamped using Shaded Spruce ink. And then die cut using the second smallest Stitched Circle die. I also die cut a scalloped circle that was just a bit larger than the stitched circle. If you want to save some card stock, you can cut this scalloped circle from the center of the piece that will be taped to the gold foil piece. 

I embossed the gold piece and taped it to the Shaded Spruce piece. Then I taped that to the Very Vanilla piece that was embossed with the snowflakes.  I didn't have the same ribbon so I grabbed some off my shelf that was close and I added it to the piece. I taped the ends on the backside with scotch tape.

The piece was then taped to the card base. 

I taped the circles together and added Dimensionals to the back and set them in place over the ribbon. My word piece was different than the original but I was just working with what I had.

I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla Card stock to the inside and the card was done.

Christmas Card, October 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Alternative Card

Here's a card I found on Pinterest that I thought was pretty. I liked it that I could make another card using the October 2020 Paper Pumpkin card without any die cuts. You can see the original card here.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.

I cut one of the card fronts from the October 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit and cut it to 3-3/4" x 3-3/4".  

The bottom piece is from the back of the card that I cut the gold dashed 3-3/4" x 3-3/4" piece from.  I cut this piece 1-1/4" x 3-3/4".

The focal piece is also a piece of the back of the card from the kit and it was cut 2-7/8" x 2-7/8". And the Whisper White piece behind it was cut 3" x 3". 

I took the Crumb Cake colored 2-7/8" x 2-7/8" piece and I stamped the wreath from the kit using Versa Mark.  I sprinkled white embossing powder on it and I heat set it. I taped the embossed piece to the Whisper White square. 

The words are from the kit and were stamped using Versa Mark and embossed with white embossing powder.

The gold dashed piece was taped to the upper part of the card and the word piece was taped just below it, leaving a white space between the two pieces.

The wreath layers were set in place using Dimensionals.

I tied a gold organza bow and set it in place on the top part of the wreath using a couple of glue dots. I usually use glue but I wasn't near the glue and I'm a lazy person!!! LOL  You can use whatever ribbon you have or what is current. I didn't have any current ribbon and this went perfectly with the card, so why not?

This was a fun, quick and easy card to make. And it didn't have any die cuts on it!! I have not received my November Paper Pumpkin yet, so I'm still adding a card in now and then from the October set. I hear some have already received their November kit. I usually get mine around the 20th. Two more days!!  I will probably wait until the weekend to play with it though.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today and have a look,                                                Wanda

Flight of Fancy, Itty Bitty Christmas, Christmas Card

I haven't decided which stamps I'm going to use to finish up my Christmas cards. I think I'm 2/3's the way done making them. I found this card on Pinterest. I liked it but I don't think I'd like to make it for the rest of the cards needed. It was too much fussing around with the wording, just trying to get it straight. You can see the original card here. I pretty much copied it as it was. 

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Shaded Spruce.  That's a color I don't use too much but it's a perfect color for Christmas time.

I stamped the angel from the "Flight of Fancy" set using black Memento ink. I colored her in using Blends Pens. I used Daffodil Delight (light), both light and dark Balmy Blue. Both light and dark Petal Pink. Light Soft Suede and light Smoky Slate.

The words are from the "Itty Bitty Christmas" set and were stamped using Real Red ink. I used my Stamparatus to line them up. I had to move them several times to get them right. I did the top ones first and the bottom ones next. I didn't have the words that were used in the original card, so I used what I had and made it work. Then I did what I absolutely hate to do, I tore the bottom of the stamped piece. It just kills me to rip up my stamped piece, especially when I got everything straight.  LOL But I went for it. I took the card stock and tore the bottom right part towards me. If I would have taken the bottom left and tore it away from me, the jagged edge would be more smooth. It does make a difference the direction you tear it. Practice it on a piece of scrap and see. 

I cut a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Christmas Plaid" 6" x 6" paper stack.  I had a strip left over from a Halloween card I had made so I used that.  It's cut 5-1/4" and you'll have to figure out how wide to cut it after your stamped piece is torn. My piece was 1-1/2" wide, which was a bit more than I needed but the piece was already cut so I used it. I wasn't going to save a 1/4" strip.  I have plenty of scrap!!! You have to draw the line sometime!

Okay, once the strip was taped in place I taped the focal piece and then I added three rhinestones to the sky and a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside and the card was done.

It was an easy card to make except for the fussiness of the wording.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,

Christmas Card, October 2020 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card

I found another lovely card to make with the October 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit.  I though this one was so pretty, plus it used the "Z Fold Technique".  I found the original card here.  I pretty much copied it as it was.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Early Expresso card stock.  The card is folded in half on the long side. I also scored the front of the card (on the inside) at 2-3/4".   I folded the edge side of the card towards the front of the card. If you look from the top edge you will see an odd looking "Z".  That is your "Z" fold.

A 2-3/4" x 4" piece of Crumb Cake card stock was cut for the focal piece. My focal piece is actually the backside of one of the cards from the kit. The front of the cards has the Crumb Cake color plus gold dashes. The back is just Crumb Cake.  I stamped this piece using Crumb Cake ink and the pretty flower image that came in the set. I just stamped randomly all over the piece.

I used my "Stitched Oval" dies and cut the largest one from a scrap piece of Soft Sea Foam card stock.  I set the die cut flower from the kit on top of the oval to see where "joy" was going to be stamped.  "Joy" is in the stamp set from the kit and it was stamped using black Memento ink.

I took two strands of the Cherry Cobbler thread/twine that came in the kit and I tied them into one bow.  I also took some twine and wrapped it around the Crumb Cake card stock piece. I taped the ends on the back and then I taped the piece to the front of the card. Make sure when you tape this that you only tape where the Early Espresso is going to be touching that part of the Crumb Cake card stock or you will end up taping your card shut. That would not be a good thing. Oh and in case you were wondering, yes, I have done that before! 

Next I set the oval in place using Dimensionals.  The flower was also added using Dimensionals.

The bow was glued on. I don't usually have good luck using glue dots or tape with the fabric stuff, so I just use glue, that way I know it's going to stay in place.

I added some rhinestones to the front. I had colored them with my dark Poppy Parade Blends pen. I set them in the centers of some of the flowers that you could actually see the centers.

And for the final touch, I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside of the card.

I did not add the Wink of Stella on the die cut flower like I have done with other cards. I thought the bling from the rhinestones was enough shine. 

This was a very fun card to make and I think it's SO darn pretty!

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today and have a look,

Snow Front, Christmas Card, 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I don't know where I was going with this card but here is where it ended up.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock for the front of my card.

The trees are from the "Snow Front" set and were stamped using Mossy Meadow ink. I had cut a post it note with a slight wave in it so I could mask the bottom of the two trees to make them look like they were behind the snow mound. 

I took my Balmy Blue ink pad and my Blender Pen and colored along that light pencil line to define the snowline.  

The words are from the "Itty Bitty Christmas" set. I stamped them using Real Red ink.

The piece was then textured using the new "Winter Snow" embossing folder. I love how detailed these snowflakes are.  

The card needed something more. I was going to splash/tap on some Balmy Blue ink to look like drops of snow but they would be white not blue so I scrapped that idea.  A ribbon didn't look right either.

I thought I'd try stamping the larger tree on a scrap piece of Whisper White using Mossy Meadow ink. Then I die cut it using the second smallest "Stitched Oval" die.

I taped the 4" x 5-1/4" piece to the card base using double sided tape.  Then I added Dimensionals to the back of the oval piece and set it in place.

This card was quick and easy to make. Not exactly what I was hoping for, but at least it's not ugly!!! LOL

Christmas Cards, October 2020 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card


With lots of pieces still in my October 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit, I thought I'd look for a card that uses some of the smaller pieces. I found this card on Pinterest and there's a video.  There is just a glimpse of the card at about 11:04 on the run time.  I changed the square so don't look for this exact color. The square in the video was Just Jade. I didn't use Just Jade because I wanted the wreath to stand out more.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Crumb Cake card stock. On top of that is 2" x 4" piece of the inside of the envelope from the kit. The Whisper White piece next to it was cut 3-1/4" x 4". Those two pieces were taped to the card base. And a 1/2" x 4" piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock was taped over the seam where the two colors met.

I cut a piece from the front of one of the card bases in the kit to measure 3" x 3".  That would probably be the same size as the Just Jade piece on the original card.  I taped that to the card front.

I stamped a wreath over the lightly colored wreath image in the wreath circle using Just Jade ink. I did not stamp any additional berries.  But I did add some rhinestones that I had colored red using the Cherry Cobbler Blends pen. I didn't set them on the wreath until I was done with the word piece.

The word piece is a 3-3/4" x 3/4" piece of Soft Sea Foam card stock. I stamped the words from the kit on it using Just Jade ink.  I snipped the ends and set the piece in place on top of the wreath using glue dots.  

I took two strands of the Cherry Cobbler twine from the kit and tied a bow. I glued that in place. I found that tape or glue dots don't seem to hold up well with fabrics.  

I added Dimensionals to the back of the wreath and set it in place on top of the card.

The rhinestones were added and a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock was added to the inside and the card was done.

This was a fun card to make and I got to use up some smaller pieces of the envelope and card front from the kit.

I have really enjoyed playing with this kit.  I have a few more cards I saw that I'd like to make but not tomorrow. I have something else I need to make.

Thank you ever SO much for taking the time to stop by today and have a look,

Snow Front, Christmas Ornament, 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog

Now for something completely different! I found this idea on a stamping blog. You can see it here. There's a video on how to stamp on wood. The original ornament used the deer stamp. I didn't have that stamp set but I did have a tree and bird so that is what I played with and it worked.

I had my husband slice me up some wood pieces. We had a black walnut tree that had to be cut down and we saved a few of the branches. I wasn't sure why but I convinced my husband that I really needed them.  See why you should never toss anything out?  My slice is a bit oblong, it doesn't matter.  It measures about 2-3/4" x 3".  And that includes the bark.  I did have to sand it a little bit, it wasn't as smooth as I wanted it. You don't want any of the rings in the piece to be able to be felt with your fingers or the stamp will not hit all the surfaces you want it to.

I took the tree from the "Snow Front" set and stamped it using black Staz-On ink.  While that was drying I took the bird from the set and used Real Red ink to stamp it on one of the branches.

I was going to stamp a sun onto the wood but the center rings of the branch kind of look like a cold winter sun.

Then I took one of the ground images from the set and stamped on the wood using Old Olive. After stamping that I realized that it won't look so wintery if the ground is green. So I thought I would cover it up with Whisper White Craft ink. I also added some lines of Whisper White craft ink to the trees to make it look like there was snow on the branches.  A little while later I noticed that the craft ink was not drying. SO I dabbed it off onto a paper towel and I repeated that until I could no longer see any on my finger when I checked to see if it was gone.  I took out my white acrylic paint and I colored over the stamped area. If you look really close you can see on the left side of the tree the green was starting to come through. I also added the paint to the branches.  The paint tried and I sealed it with some Modge Podge. Modge Podge will make the water base inks bleed. The bird got a little bit fuzzy, but not too much. You want to take a quick thin sweep over the bird and let it dry. Once dry repeat and when that is dry then cover the entire piece. I think if I give it another coat of paint it may hide it. Painting on top of the Modge Podge should keep that yellowish color in it's place.  Or I may just leave it as it is. It's my first stamping on wood piece ever!!!  

The original ornament used some of the new gold eyelash ribbon. I didn't buy any but I did have some white so I used that. I took some of the new Christmas ribbon with the gold edge and tied a knot at the tip. Then I tied the white eyelash thread/yarn to the ribbon. 

I had some jingle bells left over that were retired so I colored two of them using Poppy Parade and Mossy Meadow Blends pens.  I let them dry and then tied the silver one (gold would have been better  but I'm using what I have) to the ribbon. I tied the red and green one to the silver bells string and the piece was done. 

I think it's adorable. It's got a nice rustic look to it. A great ornament for a guys tree too!  

I believe you can order wood slices online. I didn't shop for any because I had access to them.  I have a bunch sliced and drilled and I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them all.  I do have grandkids here next month and maybe they'd like to paint some for their tree.  This was a fun time stamping. It was something different for a change!

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,

Christmas Card, October 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative Card

Today I'm going to share with you another fun October 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit card.  I am amazed at how many fun and pretty cards I was able to make with the supplies in the kit.  This is not one of my favorites but I wanted to make another card where I used one of the gold words that came in the kit. I found this card in a video about 18 minutes in. It's easy to follow along.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Crumb Cake card stock. This card opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top.

The background strip measures 5-1/2" x 2".  This piece is from the inside of one of the envelopes from the kit. This piece was taped in place on the front of the card, centering it as much as possible.

The foil banner strip was taped in place on to of the envelope strip. I tried to center it as much as possible.

I took a 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" piece of Just Jade card stock and stamped the wreath image from the kit using Just Jade ink.  This piece was then taped to one of the square pieces in the kit.

I took one of the tags from the kit and stamped the "to you and yours" on it using Just Jade ink and then taped it to on top of the wreath image. 

A bit of glue was added to the foil word "peace" and it was set in place on top of the wreath and over the top edge of the white label.  Then the piece was set in place using Dimensionals.

For the final touch, a bow was made using the Cherry Cobbler twine that came in the kit.

I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock to the inside of the card and it was done.

This was another fun card made from the kit. It was easy and quick to make too!

Thank you SO much for taking the time to visit today,

Itty Bitty Christmas, Christmas Layers, Snowflake Splendor, Christmas Card

I found a card on the internet that I liked. It was the layout that I really liked. It was something that I hadn't done before. You'd think with all the years I've been stamping that I would have done something like this. But I haven't. There's still more out there to find and do that is new to me! You can see the original card here. If you make the card from this link, you need to be careful of the measurements. There's an error on the size of the focal piece. It's not a big deal, it's just not small enough. So you will have to do a little more trimming. It's not like it's too small and your piece of card stock is ruined. This is fixable. Just thought I'd fill you in on that.

This is a very simple card to make. The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. 

The Night of Navy piece is cut 5" x 3-3/4".

The Whisper White focal piece is cut 4-7/8" x 3-5/8".

On the focal piece I took the snowflake die from the "Christmas Layers" dies and set in the upper right corner and ran it through my Big Shot. Then I moved the die to the bottom right corner and die cut it there too. Save the snowflakes, you need to put them back in place.

I turned the focal piece over and set the snowflakes back in place. I used my multi-purpose glue and glued along the outside tips of the center design. If this is confusing, look at the snowflake. See the darker center part. There's tips on that center part. That is where I put some glue and then I moved the glue along the cut lines with a toothpick.  I set this aside to dry.

In the meantime I took some Whisper White Baker's Twine and colored it with my light Balmy Blue Blends pen. You can also color it with your ink pad, it will just be a bit darker. To lighten it you can grab the twine with a pretty damp but not sopping wet folded paper towel (folded about 4 times so the ink doesn't bleed through onto your hands) and pull the thread through the paper towel. This will take off some of the ink to lighten it up. Set this aside to dry. You need it dry. Mine wasn't quite dry and it made a mark on my white area. You can also use your heat embossing tool to help dry it.

Tape the focal piece to the Night of Navy piece. 

I cut a 4-7/8" x 1-1/8" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Snowflake Splendor" 12" x 12" package.  I set it on top of the Whisper White focal piece and I made a light pencil line so I knew where it would go when I was done stamping.  I used my Balmy Blue marker and flicked some ink onto the piece. It needed a little something more than just plain white. Perhaps the snowflake embossing folder would work if you don't have a snowflake die. I think it would be pretty too.

The words are from the "Itty Bitty Christmas" set and were stamped using Night of Navy ink. The pencil mark was erased and the DSP was taped in place.  Wrap the twine around the two layers and tie a bow. 

Tape the piece onto the card base and the card is done.  As simple as that.  Pretty, huh?

Christmas Card, October 2020 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card

Here's a super simple and cute card using the October 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit. Most of the pieces are from the kit except for the card base and the ribbon cut piece. I found the card here in a video. You can see the card about 11 minutes into the video but there's no instructions.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Soft Sea Foam card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I had a piece of Designer Series Paper sitting around from another project. It came from the "Flowers for Every Season" Designer Series Paper (DSP) 6" x 6" stack.  It was cut 2" x 4-3/8" and punched using the Triple Banner Punch. 

On top of that is one of the textured rectangle pieces from the October 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit.  

The word strip is from a piece left over from the inside of one of the envelopes from the kit. It's cut 4-1/4" x 1-5/8" wide. 

The word "joy" is from the kit and stamped on a piece of one of the cards from the kit. It was punched out using the "Timeless Label" punch.  

The flower is from the kit and was set in place using Dimensionals.  I did add some Wink of Stella to the darker lines of the flower to give it some sparkle. And that was it. Super easy and quick.  Not one of my favorites but it's still pretty.

One of the fun things about the Paper Pumpkin kits is that you can change the original designs suggested and make whatever you want with the parts. There's lots of places on Pinterest to see many alternative cards. You get an ink cube each month too. I have almost all of the colors of cubes. Some I know I will never get. They tend to use the darker colors that show up. So like Daffodil Delight or So Saffron will probably not be in the kits. But that's okay, I ordered empty cubes and inked them up so I have a full collection of the small cubes.  It's nice to grab and go with them.  And another plus, you get to make a bunch of cards as opposed to the 8 the kit usually comes with.  The September 2020 kit was party favors. Nothing I would ever make but I played with that kit for many days because of all the parts in it. I had to stop playing with it because, well, Halloween came and went and the new kit had already come.  I had a lot of fun with these last two kits. I tend to make the kit as it shows but making alternative cards is a lot more fun. It depends on how much you want to play or be done! I highly recommend the Paper Pumpkin kits. 

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,                                                                          Wanda

Geared Up Garage, Here's a Card, Masculine Birthday Card

My masculine card stash is pretty low, so I thought I would see what I could come up with today.  There's not a lot of masculine stamp sets available. This one is from last year but is still current. Though I do have a feeling it will be retiring and not be in the 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Catalog. SO that means I need to play with it some more. I still have some Designer Series Paper (DSP) left too. It was designed to go with the stamp set.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.

I had a strip of DSP from the "Classic Garage" 6" x 6" paper stack. I cut it to 5-1/2" long because I believe it was still 6" long. This piece measures 5-1/2" x 2".

I stamped the car from the "Geared Up Garage" set using black Memento ink. I die cut it with the matching die.

I had a Basic Gray circle inside the set from something left over or an idea waiting to be created.  It measures about 2-5/8" and the Basic Black piece behind it was die cut using the largest "Stitched Circle" die. I taped those two pieces together. 

The words are from the "Here's a Card" set and were stamped using black Memento ink.

I taped the circles on the front of the card and I set the car in place using Dimensionals and the card was finished.  

If you don't have the DSP, you can always find something current to replace it.

Wedding Card, Sending Love, October 2020 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card

This card is SO totally different from the other cards I've seen using the October 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit. Most of them were Christmas cards but this one is more of a wedding, anniversary or even a Valentine's Day card. I found the card here, it's about 20.5 minutes into the video.  You can see that video here.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Blushing Bride card stock.  The card stock was stamped using Calypso Coral ink and the flower stamp from the October 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit. You don't need to stamp the flowers all the way to the top, though I don't think it would matter if you did.

The Calypso Coral strip of card stock was cut 4-`/4" x 1-1/2".  Before you tape the strip in place, set the "love" words on the right so you can see where you need to stamp the "sending" words. They were stamped using Calypso Coral ink.

The flower was stamped on a piece of Whisper White card stock  using Calypso Coral ink and then fussy cut. I used my Wink of Stella pen to color in the flower. It picks up a bit of the ink too and gives it a soft colored look.

The "love" is from the Paper Pumpkin kit and was set in place using a little bit of glue. Then the panel was set in place on top of the card using double sided tape.

The flower was set in place using a few small Dimensionals.

A 3/8" x 4-1/4" strip of one of the cards from the kit was taped in place just under the Calypso Coral piece and the card was done.

It's a quick, easy and pretty card. I wanted to make this card because I knew I wouldn't be using the "love" from the kit. But when I saw this card I thought it was a perfect opportunity to use "love".  And I have a wedding coming up so it was perfect timing too.

This was a fun card to make and super quick.
